    ChangedHeart WITNESS AS YOU ARE...

    Alright... I just recently joined a few minutes ago...

    My name is Brian, I am 20 years old, and I am hard-of-hearing (deaf in left ear, hearing aid in right) due to being infected and diagnosed with Bacterial Meningitis at 2 & 1/2 years of age. I also communicate through speech, lip-reading, sign language, and written forms.

    I was adopted by my grandparents at 3 years of age. They are the only parents I've known so I call them "mom" and "dad".

    I currently reside with my mom, my dad passed away January 17, 2007, due to heart failure. (He had been struggling for many years battling sickness, so he is now resting in the arms of our Heavenly Father with my niece who passed away December 24, 2006.)

    Well, I hope to meet new people and to learn of whom I will meet in Heaven at our Father's House one day.

    God bless,
    ~ Brian
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    Hi, I'm Becka one of the CF Angels

    Welcome to Christian Forums,
    Here’s a little something put together to help you out,

    Maybe you’re an old-hand at Internet discussion boards, but in case you’re somewhat overwhelmed, now might be a good time to take a peek at the FAQ which will explain a lot of things here at CF.

    You probably read the Terms of Service you agreed to when joining, but now might also be a good time to read through the Rules. They might seem long, butit may help make your stay smoother to somewhat familiarize yourself with them. They’ll tell you where and when one can post what, like, posting images (after 100 posts), restrictions on some particular forums (by age, gender and such), how to get or earn blessings (sort of our CF money) for a CF character or pet, ‘armor’ (clothes for your character), games and such, the Private Message (PM) system. You require a 100-post-count before your allowed to Private Message. If someone messages you or sends you blessings you can reply however. More on Blessings near the bottom CF is a huge place and we want you to feel welcomed and enjoy us.

    You’ll notice we have an Intro Sticky: http://www.christianforums.com/t1110956-please-read-the-rules-before-posting-thanks.html

    Most forums have other ‘Sticky’ introductions that can often be important to read before posting in that forum.

    Here are just a few forums that might be helpful in starting to explore the place. Just click on the links and find a place you like:

    CF Announcements (what’s going on around here)
    Report Bugs (not the crawly ones)
    CF How-To (Mostly technical questions on site usage)
    CF Welcome Angels (CF helpers)
    Regional forums – Where are you from?
    Congregations – What church you go to?
    Chatting with individual Staff members (usually in informal ways of friendship)
    Friendship Court (for meeting friends)
    Face the Board (which is ‘open’ to all members to ask YOU questions)
    Recovery (non-professional help with particular life struggles)
    Outreach to non-Christians by Christians, seeker prayers and help from Christians, etc.
    Edification (Christians Only) Blogs, Prayers, Testimonies, Advice
    Help with creating a CF HomepageHow to become a site supporter (and financially help this ministry)
    Help with IRC (Internet Relay Chat)

    And if you are looking for things to do besides posting, you can ...

    Take quizzes:
    http://www.christianforums.com/quiz.php (costs 10 blessings each)
    Create a character:
    http://www.christianforums.com/characters (costs ~150 blessings to begin, but you’ll want to use more to get armor/clothes)
    Create a pet (and take care of it):
    http://www.christianforums.com/pets (costs ~700 blessings to start (unless you adopt)
    Create your own blog:
    Participate in polls:
    Play games:
    http://www.christianforums.com/arcade.php (costs 10 blessings for each game)
    Create/Develop a homepage:

    To see a full list of forums click on "Christian Forums" in upper left hand corner. I hope these links are helpful to you.

    About Blessings:
    Blessings are used here to do things like get a character, changing your Signature or Avatar, and getting "armor" Clothing for your character, even a Pet, and to buy the pet food to feed it daily. Blessings are used like money here.
    Every time you post you get a blessing as well. And if you look up at the top you'll see where it says "Jobs”. There are different levels of your amount of Blessings that you choose a "job", you really don't DO anything, but you get to collect a certain amount of blessings each week. You don't automatically get them, you go there and hit the collect button.

    Same with the "Bank" you can put blessings in the bank and go once a week to collect interest. Each time you deposit or withdraw blessings the timer gets reset for another week. See the ribbon by my Character, thats my "job". As my amount of posts go up I go and quit the old job and start a new one and collect more blessings every week.

    There is a fun area here called Blessing Exchange, where people play different games to earn more blessings in larger amounts.
    If you need or want help in creating your Character or Avatar please let me know

    Have a happy journey here at CF and feel free to contact the New Member Intro forum moderators or other Staff, or the CF Angels with any questions. We are volunteers here and may not always have ready answers, but are filled with patience and kindness and will usually point you in the right direction and are intent on being helpful to your concerns.

    The quickest way to reach one is to left click on our name and then look for their Private Message (PM) link (once you have 100 posts, unless one of us PM’s you then you can reply). Prior to the 100 posts you can post a “Help Needed” message in that forum area and one will message you. I'd like to walk you through getting a character, and an Avatar if you need help.

    Thanks, Hugs and Welcome!
